Three days after Vinicius was reduced to tears, all of his Real Madrid teammates took to the field at home wearing jerseys with his name and number on them.
The away team showed their solidarity by holding up placards against racism, and the home fans showed their support for Vinicius by hanging up “We are all Vinicius” signs.
Vinicius, who had been watching the game from the stands due to injury, rose to his feet and waved as the fans gave him a standing ovation in the first 20 minutes.
Teammate Hodriguez performed a ceremony after his goal to signify the fight against racism, and Vinicius took to social media after the game to thank his teammates and fans.
The incident has sparked a wave of self-reflection in Spanish professional soccer, where racism has been rampant, with other teams joining the campaign.
